Top 10 Most Expensive Cars in the World

Cars come in many colors, sizes, forms and speeds. But cars also very much vary in their price class. Most cars are produced and sold for and to the average driver to use in his/her everyday life. But then there are also the exclusive luxury cars that are specifically produced for a very selected circle of car enthusiasts. These cars not only looks spectacular but many times also belong to the fastest ones on the market. This has its price though of course. Nothing goes for under a million. The following ranking lists the most expensive cars in the world and of all time by confirmed sales price (prices at auctions are disregarded, as are non-original tuned cars).

Production year: 2019

Bugatti’s La Voiture Noire is the most expensive car in the world. The French car company, which is owned by German car giant Volkswagen, is well known for its luxury high-performance sports cars. The Voiture Noire is a special one-off car based on the Bugatti Chiron. It was introduced at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and sold for around $12.5 million. The name of the car literally translates to “The Black Car”. Not the only reason why it resembles the legendary, but so far fictional ‘Batmobile’ car. The Voiture Noire was entirely developed in Bugatti’s headquarters in Molsheim, France.

Unsurprisingly, a Lamborghini also made into the Top 10 list of most expensive cars in the world. The Lamborghini Veneno was produced in 2013 and 2014, carrying an impressive price tag of $4.5 million per car. The sports car was developed for the 50th birthday of Lamborghini. The Italian company, which is now owned by German car corporation Volkswagen, was founded in 1963 and is the absolutely best known high-performance luxury car manufacturer in the world. The Veneno followed that long tradition in an exceptionally luxurious way. Like most cars of the brand, the Veneno was designed and developed in Lamborghini’s headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese, a small suburb town near Bologna, Italy.
